Taiwan’s Animal Shelter Cafe 浪浪別哭

Lang Lang Don't Cry!
Animal Shelter Cafe


There’s 90-minute time limit when it’s busy, otherwise your welcome to hang out. Reservations are highly recommended and the reservation system is available in English. I highly recommend making a reservation!

Inside the cafe, they have 4 cats and 4 dogs. When you make your reservation online, you’ll have to decide if you want to eat in the cat area or the dog area.

Lang Lang Don't Cry! 浪浪別哭

The dog area is in the front of the cafe next to the entrance while the dog cafe is in the back. Lang Lang Don’t Cry (exact translation of 浪浪別哭) is an animal cafe in Taipei, that works with animal shelters. That means all the pets there are available for adoption!

They have 3 locations: Taipei, Taichung and Tainan.

The animals there are absolutely loved! From the staff and the guests! Ideally, if you don’t have a pet, you can still care for one by going to this 浪浪別哭 animal cafe in Taipei.

The pets are fed well, have toys and the staff trains them to follow basic commands (at least for the dogs).

Pesto Sauce Risotto Chicken NT$290: 8/10

+NT$90 for the set (black tea/milk tea/coffee and a salad)

I love risotto, so I’m normally pretty critical. This isn’t like your typical creamy/cheesy risotto, this is a pesto sauce risotto. Although it lacks creaminess, it’s full of pesto flavor with fluffy rice. Within the risotto, you can also find some vegetables like baby corn and broccoli.

I was incredibly impressed by the chicken! It was perfectly juicy and crispy! That chicken was so good that it paired perfectly with the pesto risotto.

Fisherman's Seafood Soup NT$260: 8/10

The soup was flavorful while also not being too rich. A very delicate balance that was executed perfectly. The quality of the seafood was pretty good and I wasn’t expecting the food to be this food at an animal cafe!

Money In Taiwan

Tax Is Included In The Price

All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.

Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)

The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.

Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.

Using Credit Cards in Taiwan

If you want to use your credit card in Taiwan, make sure to check if a restaurant in Taiwan accepts credit card in advance. When a place does accept credit card, it will typically be Visa or Mastercard. It’s extremely rare for a place to accept Discover and American Express.UberEats, HonestBee, Deliveroo and FoodPanda are Taipei Food Delivery Services where you can order food directly to your airbnb or hotel using a credit card.

Exchanging Money in Taiwan

You can exchange money at the airport or any bank in Taiwan. The rates vary from bank to bank and it can be a hassle to get a good rate. For additional information, check out my Exchanging Money In Taiwan Guide.
